Life in Jail for Raping Girl, 10

Kabarnet, March 10

A middle aged man will spend the remaining part of his life in jail for defiling a ten years old girl.

Vincent Yatich Kiprop was sentenced to life imprisonment by Kabarnet principal magistrate Heston Nyaga for violating the sexual offences act of 2006.

The charge stated that Kiprop had carnal knowledge of the standard three girl on the night of June, 25/26, last year at Cheparsiat village in Marigat District of Baringo County after allegedly enticing her with honey. The accused also faced an alternative charge of indecent act with a child.

Narrating her ordeal in court, the 10 year old minor, said the accused who was their neighbour found her around 7pm preparing ‘Ugali’ for supper in her grandmother’s house where she resides.

She explained that she was alone when the accused persuaded her to accompany him to his house where he was to give her some honey.

He locked me in his house and returned later with the honey, he gave me some before taking me to his bed, where he removed my underpants while assuring me not to be afraid, she told the court.

She reported the incident to her grandmother the next morning, and her class teacher later who arranged for her to be taken to the Marigat sub district hospital for check up.

A clinical officer in the sub district hospital Mr. Leonard Chirchir said several clinical investigations on the girl revealed that she had been defiled.
